"I agree w/ Vern..."
Although the look and feel of the cigar was great, the taste was horrible and it literally provided zero smoke. Smoked about 1 inch before tossing it on the ground...just couldn't bear the thought of suffering through the entire stick waiting for it to get better. I have a few more in the humidor...anybody want them? This one is just plain BAD!

"CAUTION! You Will Love These if..."
... You like your smokes mild. And although it's not as medium as it claims to be, it is a fantastic stick. In fact, it's so good that I'm smoking one while writing this because I just couldn't wait. A must try!

Great mild smoke. Just getting back into cigars and this was a nice one. nice construction, the draw was awesome and the taste was very mild but satisfying. I have a few more and will defiantly smoke them soon.

Prelight draw tasted like a petrol product, very nasty. Smoke was thin and tasteless. Really felt like I was consuming the equivilet of a rice cake in a cigar.

"Excellent Every Time"
Everything about Fonseca 5-50 is excellent. Can't go wrong...I look forward to smoking this cigar as it is consistent in burn,draw and taste right down to the fingertips.

"Very smooth, my new go-to"
This cigar is a perfect balance for an afternoon when I am not in the mood for a powerful smoke. Just lit my first one today,and wow! Smooth and a solid medium, yet with great flavor and nice even burn. Will definitely be getting a box to keep in my humi as a go to cigar.

This is a great mild cigar. A perfect choice for a new cigar smoker as well as someone who has smoked for years. I have yet to be disappointed. The burn can be a little uneven at first from time to time but otherwise the construction is good. Has a mellow woody taste with a nice sweetness to it. An excellent cigar for the price!

"my main smoke"
My Humidor always has Fonseca 5-50's on hand. This is my favorite smoke, I enjoy it after a nice dinner out or a summer day in my back yard. Flavor really comes on halfway through but smokes consistently until the end. I prefer the natural slightly over the maduro but both are nice. I like the 2-2 for a quick smoke now and then but those petite corona's draw a little hot for my tastes. If you like a mild smoke you will love the 5-50.
